How We are Born into the Way, by Zhuangzi

ImageFish are born in water,

people are born into The Way 

of the creative universe.

If fish, born in water,
seek the water’s deep shadow,
all their needs are met.

If people, born in The Way 

of the creative universe, sink 

into the deep shadow of non-action,

forget aggression and worry,
they lack nothing,
and life is taken care of.
